HARBINGER WARS: BLOODSHOT continues here! Everyone says they want what's best for the children... but Bloodshot's the only one who's willing to fight for it. After a lifetime of lies, destruction and pain, he's vowed to use his extraordinary abilities to do one simple thing: keep these kids alive, even if they're terrified of him. The war for GENERATION ZERO, however, has been waging longer than Bloodshot realizes. And what can one soldier do when he's up against two powerful, secret armies?

    I'm not going to go into much details on it, but I will say it was an interesting read because it gives you Bloodshot's point of view from issue #1 of Harbinger Wars. It also shows you the inside workings of this character as he's facing Harada over the freed Psiots that are currently in his care. The issue itself ends on Bloodshot, his female companion, and the Psiots in his care heading to Vegas for a major confrontation there coming up in issue #2 of Harbinger Wars. Again, this was a good read, so I'd recommend you pick it up if you want to learn more about Bloodshot and his inner workings. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Dustin Cabeal May 15, 2013

    Overall this was a very strong issue for the series and managed to build the Bloodshot storyline, while still tying in and developing the Harbinger Wars story at the same time. I’m still finding this crossover to be incredibly well handled as even the overlapping scenes end up being so different that becomes a fresh read again. This issue really paves the way for new and great things for Bloodshot. Swierczynski might be leaving the book, but he’s left this series in a great spot for the Valiant Universe. Read Full Review

    If nothing else, this issue at least looks a little different. Barry Kitson is a great storyteller, and the action here is a bit clearer than it was in Harbinger Wars. The gore and violence looks awesome, too. Month after month, Bloodshot continues to be the most brutal superhero book on the stands. Faces melt off, limbs break and Bloodshot gets run over by a tank. Business as usual here, and that's not a bad thing. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere May 16, 2013

    This issue unfortunately fumbles a bit by bringing close to nothing new to the whole crossover event, while it ends up being a tad confusing with what new stuff it actually does bring. The art does save it a little bit, especially the coloring, but it does not save it from being a bit unsatisfactory for those that does follow the crossover event. Read Full Review

    Blue Raven Comics - John Wright May 16, 2013

    Drawn out comic book crossovers have been the norm since Crisis on Infinite Earths twenty-five years ago, and less-than-eventful tie in's are more common than not as publishers try to exploit the excitement for bigger sales. For a company like Valiant that's tying to innovate and break molds, it's a shame to see them making this common mistake. Readers can stick to the main Harbinger Wars miniseries and the regular Harbinger books right now and not miss much of the story. This is a disappointment for an event that promises big story and bigger changes to the Valiant U. Read Full Review
